“Best stay ever”
Reviewed 22 November 2010

When I saw the pictures on the internet, I was not convinced but we had no other options at the time so we booked it. I was pleasantly surprised of how comfortable the room was and how beautiful the decorations were. A french taste with an indian flair. With Claudia and Phillipe the owners of the place, we felt right away at home. They would prepare breakfast for us and when I got sick one day, the staff took care of me as if I was one of their family members. Everyone who worked there was helpful and did everything to make us feel at home.They also gave us a lot of tips of where and when to go anywhere on the French Riviera. After booking the room for 3 nights only at the beginning, we decided to extend our stay for another 5 nights. We definitely want to come back.

Bastide Valmasque is a great stay in the Cannes/Nice/ Antibes area. We had already stayed in Nice central for 4 days when we got to Bastide Valmasque, but there was still plenty to do in the surrounding area eg. Cannes, Antibes, Cap Ferrat, Biot, Grasse, Valbonne, etc.

The accommodation is very pretty, in the style of an Italian Villa. The pictures on the website give you a good indication of the style of the rooms. It's pretty good value for money. Breakfast is bread, croissants, jam, coffee, etc.

Philippe and his staff are all very welcoming and accommodating. Philippe had some great recommendations for day trips, restaurants and best beaches. You could easily just hang around and enjoy the Bastide, it's pretty and relaxing. There is a golf course next door if swinging a gold club takes your fancy.

Probably best suited for those with a car as the road to town is not so walkable. That being said, there were other guests that did not have a car.

Booked this B&B based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all, thoroughly enjoying our stay!

The Hosts:
Phillipe was away in Paris when we visited but his wife Claudia and her team of helpers (including her interesting friend from Morocco!) was more than perfect hosts. Provided useful local information, maps and dining options etc that all turned out perfect.

The Villa:
Excellent! The Indian influenced deco makes it different but in a good way. From mirrored sideboards to cow statues, this place really feels calm and relaxed in a stylish way. The rooms were very nice, clean and comfortable.

Breakfast:
Adequate continetal breakfast served on the outdoor terrace with fresh figs off the tree in the garden.

Location:
Walking distance from Biot village (around 15mins) and a short drive (or a slightly longer walk) to the Ocean and train station. I would recommend however that you have a car if you are staying here.

Overall: I would not hesitate in recommending Bastide Valmasque and if I was holidaying in this area again would certainly return. One thought would be perhaps the addition of a swimming pool for use in the summer months as there is plenty space in the garden.

10 out of 10. The house and the grounds around were beautiful. The accommodation was to very high standards. Owners, Claudia and Philippe, were very helpful hosts, booking tables for us at the local restaurants, giving tips and advice what needs to be seen and where to go. The location is ideal, close to village of Biot, close to railway with connections to Cannes, Monaco and Nice or short drive to those places. The B&B is really a gem. We will definitely come back.

This lovely old villa, set amid gardens and trees, is the perfect place to spend some time while traveling through the south of France. Owned and run by a delightful couple, Claudia and Phillipe, you are made to feel right at home from the moment you check in. The decor, as Phillipe told us is "Bollywood meets Provence", so expect your room to have a distinctly Asian Indian decor, inspired by the fact that the couple met and lived in India for a time.

Breakfast is included in the cost of your room; and on sunny days is served on the patio overlooking the garden.

We definitely recommend this as a delightul venue on a trip to the south of France.
